#staritahills #pinotnoir #sbcountywines #paliwineco I believe a 90 is the right score for this wine. It's aging beautifully for a 2011. Deep and ripe PN the aromas are more VA and almost syrah or Zinfandelish than PN. What I love is the body and the refinement on the palate. There's a lovely sage and myrrh sensation that later leaves a dark cherry jam finish. Warm alcohol. — 3 years ago
Clear and bright pale lemon. Clean pronounced aromas of ripe apricot, sage, fennel and gingerbread. On the palate it's dry albeit with a lush glyceric texture with medium plus intensity flavors of of apricot pie with a smiley charred crust and a touch of nutmeg and spice. Medium plus alcohol, medium plus acidity, well integrated oak, balanced with a medium plus finish. Complex, unique and well balanced. Only 22 barrels. #staritahills #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #centralcoastwine #californianwine #sbcountywines — 3 years ago
Deep ruby color, pronounced primar aromas of ripe black fruits, secondary aromas of brown sugar, coffee and toffee. It has a fresh medium+ acidity, ripe soft tannins and high well integrated alcohol. Long finish. Can definitely age for 5-10 years. Truly #syrah the one way to recognize it's from #California is just a touch of sweetness and that alcohol, otherwise it would be very difficult to distinguish from any #worldclass #staritahills — 3 years ago
Médium garnet, legs, medium nose, potpourri, dried roses, slightly meaty and bloody, cumin and sage and smoke. On the palate it’s completely #californiawine with a rich and luscious body and flavors. Strawberry tart and rhubarb. With a touch of leather. Wicked #pinotnoir from #staritahills #zotovich — a year ago
Not sure what to think about this one. My friend liked it. I on the other hand did enjoy it as much. Seemed to me to be sort of a creamy fruit forward Pinot. It may have been because this was a second bottle of the night my palate was off a bit. Normally I love this producer so I will revisit and see if anything changes. #saarloosandsons #staritahills #losolivos #pinotnoir #winestagram #california #centralcoastwine — 2 years ago
Jay McInerney said about his first time tasting Chardonnay from Santa Rita Hills "It was a little like meeting Jessica Simpson only to have her start speaking perfect French in Carla Bruni's voice."
Anjou pear, Meyer lemon zest, almond paste, and vanilla poached peach.
